The Data Science and Technology (DST) Department, in the Computational Research Division (CRD) at Berkeley Lab develops software and tools to enable scientists to address complex and large-scale computing and data analysis problems beyond what is possible today. DST engages in partnerships with scientists to understand their computing and data analysis challenges to develop leading-edge solutions. Our research areas address aspects of scientific data quality and understanding that are not adequately addressed by existing frameworks and tools. Details on current projects are available on http://dst.lbl.gov.
The Data Science and Technology department in the Computational Research Division has an immediate opening for a Computer Systems Engineer (CSE), who will join the team on a wide array of research and development projects. This position will be filled at a level 2 or 3.
What You Will Do:
Code, design and develop software solutions to enable scientific research, as part of diverse teams including computer engineers and domain scientists.
Deploy, install, configure, integrate, and test software systems using "DevOps" style best practices for scalable infrastructure.
Enable data pipelines related to scientific computing systems through data collection, manipulation, analysis and access.
Provide input to domain science and/or computer science research papers suitable for submission to peer-reviewed venues.
In addition to the above, the CSE III also will:
Coordinate and/or lead the development and science teams on requirements and features.
Coordinate and/or lead the software development process for the team.
Present to audiences within and outside the lab.
What is Required:
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field and 5 years of related experience; or Master's degree in Computer Science or a related field and 3 years of related experience; or equivalent work experience
Experience managing systems using established software engineering and DevOps practices on UNIX systems.
Familiarity with database systems and web technologies.
Ability to conduct analysis and work independently.
Excellent English written and oral communication.
Strong interpersonal skills for working in a diverse team environment.
Additional Required Qualifications, CSE III:
Bachelor's degree and 8 years of related experience; or Master's degree years and 6 years of related experience ; or equivalent work experience.

Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience applying modern software technologies for databases, computational workflows, data processing pipelines, and/or scientific reproducibility.
Familiarity with virtualization technologies, cloud and container platforms.
Familiarity with High Performance Computing and Scientific Computing.
User interface and front-end web development experience.
Experience acting as the lead of a development team.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full-time 1 year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
Classification will depend upon the applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
